^ - >; PREFACE 

In presenting this book to the public we feel that it is very far 
from being complete, and no one regrets it more than the ones who 
have given of their time and energies to help compile what we have. 
Yet we have put forth our best efforts to make the history as full and 
as far-reaching as it was within our power to do, and we trust that 
where discrepancies have occurred or omissions may have been made 
hat it was not with any knowledge of ours. Many places where the 
information is very limited and appears to be wanting, it was all that 
we could get. 

We wish to thank those who have taken an interest ami helped 
to gather the record for this book, and would ask the members of the 
McXary Familv to secure one of the books and to fill up any omissions, 
correct any errors or make additions for births and notations of deaths, 
so that at some future day, if it be desired to compile a later edition 
or a supplement, it may be done much easier and be better. 

The expense of publishing has been guaranteed by voluntary con- 
tributions, which are to be reimbursed from the proceeds of sale of 
book, and we sincerely hope that every family will purchase as many 
as they can use. and thus help out the Committee, as it is not the in- 
tention to make any money, but to merely bear the expense of the pub- 
lication. To this end we have made the price only nominal and within 
the reach of all. THE PL'BLISHIXG COMMITTEE. 


Every McNary household should have one of these Books 
that they may know the family history and that they will he 
prepared to keep reeord of at least their immediate families, 
of the Births and Deaths etc., for future records and should 
there be another edition published later to complete it. 

There has been a limited number of these Books printed 
and if you do not have one you should secure it while the 
supply lasts. They are being sold at the cost of Publishing 
and can be had by addressing

By J. R. McNary of Burgettstown, Pa. 

Should the casual Student — in this year of grace 1907 
deign to trace the rise and development of our great and rapidly expanding country, 
by referring to the pioneer annals of Western Pennsylvania — especially to the history 
of that portion located to the westward of the Monongahela, and south of the Ohio 
River — he will find abundant evidence to incite true wonder and admiration! In this 
wonderful region — a veritable hive of industry — where the verdant hills and fertile 
valleys are girded by bands of steel, and thickly studded with suburban village or 
embryonic city; where furnace and workshop belch forth flaaie; and where luiuost 
the entire region is a "city of derricks," tapping subterranean wealth in streams 
of oil and gas! Where hundreds of mines are distributing millions of tons of Black 
Diamonds to feed the furnace, the workshop and the warship of the great- 
est empire known to man! In the presence of this wonderful scene of activity 
and of applied mechanical power, the student of National progress may well pause. 
and, in unfeigned admiration exclaim, ''How. and from whence came all this?" And 
will the cause of his unalloyed admiration be lessened, kind reader, to learn that 
but a little while ago — aye, four generations only, agone — all this entire region was 
unknown to civilization, constituting an unbroken forest, in undisputed possession of 
fierce and vicious beasts of prey — the wolf, the bear, and panther! pastured by the 
now almost extinct elk and buffalo! and peopled only by the aboriginal red man of 
the forest — the Mingo or the Delaware! 

Contemporaneous with, and amid this intense scene of reclamation, or trans- 
formation, of "desert to garden" — of native grandeur to civilized magnificence — 
that immediately preceded the birth, and continued during the infancy of our great 
Republic, may be dated the origin, or foundation, of one of the most numerous and 
influential families of Scotch-Irish descent iu the United States— the McNary family 
of Pennsylvania! 


The names, and dates of entry, of the first white settlers to penetrate and 
occupy this vast unsettled region — so intimately connected with the trials and priva- 
tions of the early ancestors of this prominent Scotch-Irish family — have unfor 
tunately been lost to succeeding generations! From the earliest "traditions" ob- 
tainable, we learn that the well-known French explorer, La Salle, in A. D. 1670 
entered this region from Canada, descending the Allegheny and Ohio rivers— f he 
La Belie Riviere of the early French geographers — as far South as the site of the 

5 .' / 


city of Louisville, Kentucky. Prom this early date, there is an uninterrupted gap 
of 79 years in the history of this region, until, in A. D. 1749 we have an authentic 
account of a French exploring expedition from Canada, led by Celoron tie Bienville, 
who, with a detachment of 215 French soldiers, accompanied by a party of 55 In- 
dians, descended the "La Belle Rieviere" from the headwater of the Allegheny to 
the mouth of the Miami — by the course of which latter stream he returned to Canada! 
The Celoron party landed at intervals to bury leaden tablets, especially prepared for 
the expedition, proclaiming dominion over this entire region in the name of the 
King of France! There were, at this date, no permanent white settlements vest 
of the Allegheny Mountains in Pennsylvania; but there may have been a few trading 
posts established by fur-dealers, and the region traversed by "trapping" and -hunt- 
ing" parties, who visited the different Indian tribes for exchange of commodities. 
George Washington, accompanied by Christopher Gist and six others, pene- 
trated this region A. D. 17o3 on a mission for the Governor of Virginia to the com- 
mandant of the French, at Fort Le Boeuff— now French Creek, Pennsylvania. At this 
date — four years after the Celoron expedition — we hear of a settlement at the mouth 
of Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, by one John Frazer; and Christopher Gist, "Washing- 
ton's friend and scout, has established a home near the location of Connellsviile, 
Pennsylvania. The succeeding year — A. D. 17-34 — the French, under Contrecoeur. 
came down in force from Canada, and established themselves at the "forks of the 
Ohio," erecting a "fort," which they named "Duquesne" (now Pittsburg). Tue 
French held possession of this disputed territory until General Forbes, in 173S, was 
dispatched from Carlisle. Pennsylvania, with an army of 7.000 English and Colonial 
troops to expel the invaders, and destroy the fortificatious they had erected — which 
task was successfully accomplished November 2-3th of the same year (173S), forever 

tending French dominion east of the Mississippi! 
After the expulsion of the French, the razing of Fort Duquesne and the erec- 
tion of the English "Fort Pitt" on its ruins, there were few, or no permanent 
settlements made in this Western country until after the overthrow of Pontiac, and 

Ithe ending of the great Indian uprising incited by the cunning wiles of this power- 
ful chieftain — known in history as Pontiac 's War — which occurred in 1763. After 
the subsidence of this great uprising against the whites, and when tranquility had. 
in a measure, been restored, the country began gradually to be occupied by the 
desultory immigration of the more restless and venturesome element from the eastern 
slopes of the Alleghenies. 

But it was some ten years later, or about 1773, that the Western country 
began to be populated by the influx of that sturdy Scotch-Irish element from Eastern 
Pennsylvania and from Virginia, that gave this region its well-earned reputation for 
the probity, sobriety and moral stamina of its pioneer settlers. Concurrent with 
the close of the Revolutionary conflict with the mother country, in A. D. 17m'. began 
the great flood-tide of emigration to the Western wilderness, "beyond the Alle- 
ganies;" and upon the crest of this wave came the ancestors of that uunvrous 
and influential Scotch-Irish Clan— the subject of this brief narrative— the McNar? 


By Rev. W. P. McNary. 

Some time after the Civil War I asked my grandmother to give me the his- 
tory of the McXary family. She became greatly interested and gave me a pretty 
full account of the older generations of the family, which I wrote down very eare- 
fullv. I regret very much to say that that memorandum was lost. After her death 
I mentioned the loss of the memorandum to Mr. William Martin, Canonsburg. Pa. 
He told me to go and see his mother, that her maiden name was McXary and that 
she was familiar with the whole family history. I went with him immediately to 
call on his mother and she gav e me a full and reliable account of the father of nil 
of us and his five children. I wrote down her statement and read it over to her 
for correction. I remember that it agreed substantially with the account given mc 
by my grandmother. Taking her history, which was given from memory, for a basis 
I undertook to verify her statements in every way possible. I wrote to the 
Recorder of York County, Pennsylvania, for an abstract of all the deeds and wills 
containing the McXary nam e in the records of that county. I also wrote to Brook 
County, West Virginia, for similar facts and went in person to Washington. Penn- 
sylvania, and examined the records there. I also wrote to the session of Guinston 
congregation, of which our ancestors were members, for the session records con- 
cerning them. I am glad to say that every item of information received con- 
firmed the statement of Mrs. Martin and I am convinced that her history, although 
given from memory, is substantially correct, and I am thankful that I was enabled 
to write what I believe to be an authentic history of our branch of the McXary 

When I began to study this history I wa,s under the impression that all the 
McXarys in this country belonged to the same connection. I clung to that theory 
with great tenacity for a long time. I opened correspondence with four differenr 
McXary families, one in Vermont, one in Kentucky, one in Tenuessee and one ic 
Red Stone, Virginia, and tried very hard to find the connecting link between us 
and these other families, but that missing link I was never able to find. 

Finally when I was in Scotland in 1^7S I went to the state archives in 
Edinburgh, where there is kept a complete record of all the births, baptisms and 
marriages of the people of Scotland. There I found page after page of McXarys, 
McXairys, McEnarys and McXairs. and I became convinced that these are differ- 
ent spellings of the same name. They were a very prolific stock and you will see 
from reading this history that in this respect our own McXary families are worthy 
descendants of their Scotch ancestors. One thing is sure, the McXary family is 
not in favor of "race suicide." If the history of the family could be written up 
to date there would not be less than 2,000 names, descendants of James McXary. 
of York County, Pennsylvania, and there are two other McXary families in the 
L'nited States n.-arly as large, besides some scattering ones. To illustrate what I 
mean by scattering ones I must tell you of a man I found in Princeton, Indiana, that 



bore that name: He was as- black as a crow. He had been a slave in one of the 
McXary families in Kentucky. 

While speaking of the other McXary families in the United States T want to 
give you a little history which is worth preserving for the sake of some one who 
may some time make a more exhaustive research as to the origin t>f the family. 
It is in the form of an extract from a letter by a William S. McXary in the ''Com- 
mercial Bulletin,"' of Boston, which was sent to me by Mrs. Margaret Spencer, of 
Colli us ville, Connecticut. 

''I believe in one of the old rare volumes of our public library there is a 
little information and an engraving of the family coat of arms. The latter I have 
seen and will send you a copy. * * * As it now stands McXary means. 'Sol 
of the King." In the old Celtic language Mac — Son, Xa — of the, Ry — King. Iu 
Celtic it is written rig (pronounced re), French — roi, Spanish — rey. Italian — re, 
Latin — rex regis. The original form was McEnarig (pronounced McEnary), which 
meant King's sou or crowned prince. The name has been Anglicized into McXary. 
McXairy, McEnary, McHenery and McXair. The last two forms I am somewhat 
doubtful about. This I gather from an old Celtic scholar. He told me the family 
was Irish in origin and was descended directly from one of the sons of King Byron 
Boru, who was killed at the battle of Clontarf, when the Danish invaders were final I y 
driven out of Ireland. People of the name may be found in County Limerick, 
Ireland. I understand there is a Castleton in that County, which town used to be 
called Castletown-McXary. In it is an old ruined abbey and a castle which once 
belonged to the family, and there is also a McXary burying ground.'' 

It would appear from this account that all the original McXarys were Irishmen. 
but our ancestor and probably all the other McXary families lived many years iu 
Scotland and are therefore veritable Scotch-Irish. 

Xo doubt the original name was MacXary and the fact that many of out 
ancestors could neither read nor spell accounts for the variety in the spelling, espe- 
cially when the name passed through the Scotch and English dialects. 

I have had correspondence with four different families, besides our own York 
county family, that can trace no relation to each other. 

First: The Vermont family. 

Martin McXary. who was born in Grennoek, Scotland, in 1723 (about twelve 
years younger than our ancestor James 1. came to this country before the Revolu- 
tionary War. He was a soldier in the French war. He had a son who was a lad 
and therefore must have been a widower, and he married a Mrs. Mahitible Blake, 
a widow of a soldier of the French war. He was also a soldier of the Revolutionary 
War and died in 1S09 in his s '">th year. Up was the ancestor of a large and in- 
fluential family who live mostly in New England. One of the descendants is now in 
Congress. Brigadier General William Henry McXary wa- Colonel of the Fifty-eighth 
Xew York Volume rs during the war. I have sent several of my circulars to the 
members of that family and have kept up correspondence with them. 

Second: The Kentucky family. 

A Mr. McXary who was nearly contemporary with James and Martin lived in 
Kentucky before the Revolutionary War. He is said to have come from Scotland. 


He had five sons and tw« daughters who were raised in Muhlenburg County, Ken- 
tucky. A postoffice in that county is named for the family. They are Presbyterian 
people and appear to be prominent in the community. I got my information from 
Dr. H. F. MeXary, of Princeton, Kentucky. 

It was no doubt from that family that our colored brother got his name, 
as Princeton, Indiana, is only a short distance from MeXary postoffice, Kentucky. 

Third: Tennessee family. 

Six brothers by the name of McXairy lived in Tennessee from the year ITS". 
The eldest of the six, John, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, March 
30th, 1762, and was elected Judge of the Superior Court of North Carolina by 
the General Assembly of that State on December 20th, 17S7. Later he was ap- 
pointed by George Washington Territorial Judge of the territory south of the Ohio 
river and held that office until the territory became a Stare, when he was by the 
Assembly appointed Judge of the Superior Court of the State of Tennessee. He 
was later appointed by George Washington District Judge of the Courts of East 
and West Tennessee and held that office until his death on November 10th, 1S37, 
a period of 40 years in all. A county and a town in Tennessee were named for 
him and his brothers. There is quite a large connection of the descendants of 
these six brothers, and although they spell their name with an "i" they always 
regarded their name the same as that of the MeXarys of Kentucky. 

Fourth: Virginia family. 

William MeXary, of Red Stone, Old Fort, Virginia (now Brownsville, Pa.), 
was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. One of his grandsons. Forest McNary, is 
now living at Green Castle, Indiana, and takes an iuterest in the history of the 
MeXary family. (See Supplement.) 

With reference to all these separate families we may say that they appear 
in America about the same time, they all have the same characteristics, they are 
generally upright, substantial Scotch and Irish Presbyterians. They have the same 
physical characteristics and no doubt originated from the same old Celtic stock. 
Di.'ir relationship, while it may never be traced, may be taken for granted, and 
"ii'ir history incorporated into one family record. 










1. — James McNary (1), the father of us all, was born in Scotland about the 
vear 1711. He was a man of medium size, spoke with a broad Scotch brogue and 
was a shoemaker by trade. The traditions of his family say that he was born in 
Scotland, that he lived a short time in Ireland and came to America with his 
family some time prior to 1760 and settled in Chanceford Township, York County, 
Pennsylvania. In the year 17(30 he bought a tract of land from Samuel Esson for 
three pounds ten shillings. Again in 1 7*34 he bought another farm from Robert 
MeCall 'for forty-two pounds ten shillings. He had four sons and one daughter, 
John, James, Thomas, David and Jane — the daughter married a Mr. Robinson in 
York County, and as far as we know remained there all her life. Later in life he 
deeded part of his land to his son John and part to his son James. He and his 
sou John were elected elders in Guinston congregation on the same day, May loth, 
17i39. It is worthy of remark that all of his four sons were elected elders in the 
Associate Church, two of them in the old Chartiers congregation. 

In the year 17^3 he removed with his youngest son. David, to Hanover Town- 
ship, Washington County, Pennsylvania, where he died at the age of So and was 
buried at Harmons Creek (now called Service) graveyard. His granddaughter. Mrs. 
Martin, who gave me the data for this early history, said she remembered dis- 
tinctly being at his funeral and seeing the coffin lowered in the grave, although she 
was only six years old at the time. She kept his family Bible and it was in the 
possession of her son, William Martin, after her death, who gave it to me on No- 
vember 24th, 1901. It is now deposited in the vault of the Citizens Trust Company 
at ('anonsburg. Pennsylvania.

Inasmuch as this is a history as well as a genealogy we will endeavor to 
bring out the dim and misty legends of the older generations and get all possible 
items of interest on record before it is too late. One of the objects of this geneal- 
ogy is to create an interest which will stimulate the members to dig up all the old 
records that are available and as far as possible fill out the missing items in the 
history of the older generations. 

2. — John McNary (2), son of .James, of York County. Pennsylvania, was born 
about the year 1738, probably in Scotland, and came to this country with his 
father's family. The first we know of him he was elected an elder in the Associate 
Church of Guinston on May loth. 1769. He lived on the old horn-stead in Chanee- 
ford Township, in York County. Pennsylvania, in a log house, weather-boarded and 
painted red. on a farm containing 340 acres, which he bought from his father. 
He was a prominent member of the Guinston Church until his death. We have 
no record of his size or general appearance. He sold his York County farm in 
1801 for twelve hundred pounds, came to Washington County. Pennsylvania, aid 
bought the old McXary farm in Xorth Strabane Township. The farm was heavily 
timbered and quite hilly, but it had a strong spring of clear, pure water pouring out 
of the hillside which decided the location of the future home.. Xo doubt the line? 
of that farm were blazed with the axe through the heavy timber, as was the custom 
in those early days. Having secured a future home for his fmily he returned to 
bring them out in the following spring. But that was not to be. for he died "n the 
10th or 17th of the folowing March — 1S02. The will was made and signed on the 
loth, and probated on the 19th. 

Joseph Reed and his son. John McXary, were made executors and as the} 
lived t i.i rtL-.-n miles f*n>m the eouuty seat the funeral could not have been later Ciiati 
the ISta, although the date of his death is not recorded. A tombstone was ere--. il 
to his memory in 18^9 by Oliver R.. James S., John C. and W. P. McXary in tl 
Guinston graveyard. 

He married Esther Boyle, who died a few years before him, some time b 
tween 1793 and 1799. Bv her he had thirteen children. Betsy, Mary. Margaret, 


.Tamos, Malcolm, Esther, Kaney, John. Thomas. Alexander, Thomas, .lane and Janet, 
all of ivhoni lived to be married except the two sons whose names were Thomas, 
both of whom died in their youth. Nine of the living children we believe came to 
Washington County together in 1802, James having come three years before and 
Betsy having married and remained in York county. Of these eleven children we 
have been enabled to get a pretty full account of the men and some of the women. 
Of some of the women we know but very little.

he married Margaret Reed, of Chanceford. York County, who was born October Sth. 
1772 — daughter of Colonel Joseph Peed, of the Revolutionary Army, member of the 
State Legislature in 17S0, who introduced the measure that led to the emancipa-

This same Joseph Reed was the drawer of the will, and one of the ex- 
ecutors of John McNary (2), of Chanceford. York County, Pennsylvania (the 
founder of this branch of the "McNary family;" and who, about 1779. procured 
the removal of Rev. Joseph Smith and family to the Cross Creek. Pennsylvania, 
region; the said Rev. Smith being the second minister to locate west of the 
Allegheny mountains in Pennsylvania; and the first minister to locate west of 
Chartiers Creek, and for whom Smith Township (Washington County) was named 
at the date of its organization, July loth, 1781. For this service of transporting 
Rev. Smith and family over the Alleghenies. to be stated pastor at Cross Creek, 
Pennsylvania, Joseph Reed received from Col. James Marshall (the first sheriff of 
Washington County) a tract ■>£ 190 acres of land in Cross Creek Township. The 
wagon used in the removal of Rev. Joseph Smith is said to have been the first 
"wheeled" vehicle to cross the Allegheny mountains — all previous transportation 
being by means of pack-horses.

the other members of his father's family, James McNary, with his wife, Margaret

an injury, James McNary died July 12th, 1S09, in his fortieth year and after a brief 
wedded life of 11 years. His remains are interred at Hickory, Pennsylvania, in 
the United Presbyterian Cemetery. His faithful wife survived her husband, as 
a widow, for 57 years, dying May 25th, 1866, aged 94 years, and was laid to rest bv 
his side at Hickory, Pennsylvania. » 

Margaret McXary was a woman of remarkable memory, tact, and intel- 
lectual vigor, and was in every way well fitted to become a "Mother in Israel" 
in the successful rearing of her orphaned family amid the trials and privations 
incident to a pioneer life. A suitable monument has been raised to the memorv 
of these honored ancestors in Fairview Cemetery, Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, bv 
their grandsons, Joseph R. McXary (Xo. 201) and W. James McXary (Xo. 20S).

405. — John McNary (3), third son of the head of the John branch, was born 
X'ovember 2nd, 177G, in York County, Pennsylvania, and died February 11th, 1844, 
He was the oldest son at home at the time of his father's death and was executor of 
his father's will. He settled up his father's estate and brought the family to the 
new home in Washington County in 1S02. He afterwards bought the farm and 
it remained in the possession of his children until the death of his son, James, in 
1902, which was just 100 years. He was a man of medium height, rather slender, 
with high forehead, wore small side whiskers and had steel gray hair at the time 
of his death. He was ordained as an elder in the Chartiers Associate Church 
June 18th, 1810. It is worthy of remark that his father, his grandfather, his son 
and his grandson were elders in the same denomination, making a line of elders 
for five generations and it is to be hoped that the next generation will keep up the 
record. He married Jean Hill (who was born in 1780 and died January 11th, 1867), 
who survived him for many years. She was a woman of extraordinary character, 
of strong will, strong mind and strong constitution. She was famed for her hos- 
pitality and for her kind and jovial spirit in her old age. Her grandchildren have 
no more pleasant memories than that of their visits to their Grandmother MeXary's 
home. In about twelve years after John McXary came to the old farm he built 
a large brk-k house on the hillside with high front porch and a commodious spring 
house. These, with pc^ar trees, locust trees and the Lombardy poplar in the front 
yard and a large orchard on the hill above form a picture which we will keep in 
memory while memory lasts. These parents had nine children, William Hill, John, 
James S. ; Clarkson $., Oliver R., Esther, Jane, Alexander C. and Abbie Caroline.

this community. Those who rememb- r 
her will recall her large eyes, like her 
mothers, and her quiet refined and 
somewhat queenly manners, which 
stayed with her in later years. 

It was expected that she would 
spend part of this summer here in her 
girlhood home among the friends of 
her youth, but all of the Aehby chil 
riren had a strong affection and sym 
patby for each other, and Cora was 
never able to recover fully from the 
loss of her younger brother. Edgar.

In taking up this part of the genealogical history,— the Thomas McXary 
Branch,— we have experienced much difficulty in obtaining accurate and reliable 
dates of some of our early ancestry, but on the whole, we feel the record 
can be relied "upon as correct. 

2. Thomas McNary (2), son of James, the Scottish pioneer, was born on bia 

father's farm in Chanceford Township. York County. Pennsylvania. The date of 
his birth, we cannot be absolutely certain of, but believe it to have been about 1744. 
He was married in 1766 to Jennet Robinson in York County, who was born in 1747. 
We find, by consulting "Spangler's History and Sketches of York County Familes," 
that Thomas McXary was a volunteer in the Revolutionary War. and captain of 
the Fourth Company of the Fourth Battalion of the "Flying Camp"' in 1776, which 
inarched to New Jersey and took part in the Battle of Trenton. Also that one David 
McXary, brother of Thomas, was a private in this same company commanded by 
Captain Thomas McXary. It may be a matter of interest to know that David Mc- 
Kinlev, grandfather of President William McKinley. was a member of this battalion. 

In December, 17S2. this same Thomas McXary. following the line of emigra- 
tion westward, purchased a farm in what is now Xorth Strabane Township, Wash- 
ington County. Pennsylvania, of James Allison.— 250 acres of land for -'375 pounds 
specie, lawful money of Pennsylvania.'' situated on the forks of Shirtee Creek on 
Sugar Tree Run. bounded by lands of Dorce Penticost, and to a line of said tract 
run by Henry Taler (Henry Taylor) and lands of John McDall (McDowel). For 
this tract he received a warrant dated October 29th. 17S4. and on the 21st of Feb- 
ruary, 1735, it was surveyed to him as "Sugar Tree'" and contained 219 acres. This 
farm was inherited by his son, Matthew, and continued his until his death, when 
it passed into the possession of John Struthers, and is now owned by Henry 

Thomas McXary was "a large, fine-looking man" of a robust physique suited 
to the requirements of pioneer life, such as he was afterwards called on to 
endure. His church connection was in the Chartiers Seceder or Associate Congrega- 
tion. Canonsburg, of which he was ordained an elder some time prior to 1799. He 
continued to reside on his farm until his death, which occurred in 1S20, aged about 
75 years. His body was interred in what is now known as Oak Spring Cemetery, 
Canonsburg. In his will he makes provision for the legal freedom of a servant, 
"Jean Parkinson," who had been practically free for many years before this time. 

This same Thomas McXary, of Washington County, son of James, of York 
County, had six children, five sons anil one daughter — James, David, Matthew, Joseph 
and Samuel.

1811, to Anna CaldweH, born 1791, died 1SGS, of Washington Connry, and after a

Township and located on a farm in said Township, Washington County, Pennsvl- 
vania, near the village of Muntown, and attended the Pigeon Creek Seceder Church 
of which he was an elder, for many years. At his death his body was laid to rest

1783 for "75 pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania." The deed for this land is 
recorded in Washington County, Pennsylvania, although there is some doubt whether 
his residence was not over the State line, in Brooke County, West Virginia. Born 
in A. D. 1757, three years prior to his father — James MeXary, the original ancestor — 
locating upon the "MeXary" homestead in Chaneeford Township, York County. 
Pennsylvania, it is quite probable that David, the fourth and youngest son, was bora 
in America. In person, David was a large man and of a "sandy" complexion. His 
wife's maiden name was Esther Cowden — no doubt a sister, or near relative, of the 
ancestor of the Cowden family, who located upon a part of -the "George Washingtcn 
tract," in Mt. rieasant Township, Washington County, at an early day. David Me- 
Xary died A. D. 1 S 1 7 . His will is on record at Washington, Pennsylvania. His 
son William and John Cowden — no doubt a brother-iu-law — are named executors; and 
of his estate he bequeaths the one-eighth each to his wife, Esther, and to William, 
Margaret, wife of John Ramsey; Sarah, Mary, wife of Samuel Martin; Elizabeth, 
Esther and Jane, his seven children. Some doubt exists as to the place of burial of 
David, and of his venerable father, James — the "original ancestor." William Me- 
Xary, the only son of David, together with his immediate descendants, are interred 
in the old graveyard at or near Paris, Washington County, Pennsylvania; but the 
final resting place of the "pioneer" David anil of his aged father is not certainly 
or definitely located — the imperfect markings of all graves of that early date being 

*There being no descendant of David MeXary known to the' publication com- 
mittee to whom to apply for a compilation and history of the descendants of David, 
the youngest of the MeXary quartet, the writer reluctantly accepted the task, and 
herewith presents as full and complete a record of this branch, as now seems pos- 
sible, from the meager data available, after the lapse of a century from the days 
of the "pioneer" David: For the inaccuracies and imperfections. — either of omis- 
sion or commission, — in the performance of his labor, the writer begs of the read'-r

now illegible. While it is possible that their remains are interred in the old Paris, 
or Harmon 's Creek, Cemetery, where many of the succeediag generations lie, yet 
it is quite probable that the remains of "Old James,' - of his pioneer sun David, and 
of David's wife— Esther Cowden— are at rest in the ancient cemetery, or burying 
place, of the old Seceder Congregation, known as "The Tent," in pioneer days- 
located some five miles south or southwest of Paris, Pennsylvania, but within the 
West Virginia border— which seems to have been the earliest burial place established 
in the Holliday's Cove region. David McNary was an elder in the old Dr. Anderson's 
Harmon's Creek congregation, under whose teachings hi* family were reared, and 
the principles, or doctrines of Calvanism instilled, which left its impress upon the 
succeeding generations and lent to the pioneer settlers of Western Pennsylvania a 
reputation for moral and religious probity second to no other region of our countrv. 

At the date of the location and settlement of David McXary upon the waters 
of Harmon's Creek in 17S3, the condition of all the region westward of the Monon- 
gahela Kiver was most serious; Indian raids, or incursions of the savage tribes 
from west of the Ohio River upon the unprotected settlers were frequent, and a con- 
tinuous menace to the pioneers of the northwestern portions of Washington County — 
being on the extreme boundary of the advance line of civilization! For some tune 
prior to this date, an "outpost," or "military station," had been maintained at 
Holliday's Cove, on Harmon's Creek, near the outlet to the Ohio, and garrisoned 
by a detachment of Colonial "militia," or "minute" men, whose duty it was to 
look after the safety of the early settlers. The earlier settlements were alwavs 
made under the protection and in the vicinity of these frontier "outposts;" hence 
it was that frequent settlements, including but a few families, in exposed localities, 
were made miles in advance, leaving' much of the wilderness to the rear, unclaimed 
and unoccupied. In A. D. 17S3 large tracts of Washington and Beaver Counties 
were yet unsettled, unsurveyed and unclaimed under the patent laws of the State; 
and all of the country to the west and north of the Ohio River, was yet an unbroken 
forest in possession of the native Indian tribes of the northwest. 

By what means of transportation, or by what route over the Allegheny Moun- 
tains, David McXary, accompanied by his aged father, reached the scene of his new 
abode upon the western borders of civilization, must now be a matter of conjecture! 
We know that at this time no "highways" had been cut through the dense and 
heavily timbered forest westward from the Monongahela to the Ohio: There existed 
the old "Indian" or "Mingo" trail, which traversed this region, from Fort Dit- 
quesne, at the "forks of the Ohio" (Pittsburg) to the "Mingo Bottoms" on the 
Ohio River, below Steubenville— passing nearby Holliday's Cove, on Harmon's 
Creek. If David McXary and his father crossed the Alleghenies by the military road 
opened by General Forbes in his march over the mountains to capture and destroy 
Fort Duquesn.-, in 1758, lie probably reached his new home from Pittsburg over the 
"Mingo" trail, via Robinson's Run and Cherry Valley, crossing Raccoon Creek and 
valley at the fair grounds, Burgettstown; thence, by Harmon's Creek, to the 
military "outpost" in the near vicinity of his chosen home, in the new settlement 


on the eastern banks of the Ohio. But, as his brothers — James, in 17S0, ant] 
Thomas, in 17S2 — hail preeeded David to the "promised land" beyond the moun- 
tains, and had already settled in the Chartiers region of Washington County — tLe 
"Shirtee" of pioneer days — it would seem that these brothers probably crossed the 
mountains via Raystown (Bedford) and. by the "Cumberland"' road, to "Redstone 
Old Fort'' (now Brownsville), on the Monongahela; whence, crossing this stream, 
they would be within one day's journey of their destination upon Chartier's Creek. 
At this early day the emigration over the mountains, from Eastern Pennsylvania, 
was by either the one or the other of these routes; and the latter, or southern 
route, seems to have been the popular one from the frontier "outposts" back to 
the older settlements in the East, from whence all needed supplies were obtained. 
Conceding, then, that the preceding brothers — James and Thomas — had come West 
over the southern or "Raystown" road to "Redstone Old Fort," or Brownsville, on 
the Monongahela — what more natural than that father and brother should have 
been "admonished" to "journey through the wilderness" by the same route? 
Once at "Redstone Old Fort." father and son would have the benefit of water 
transportation (by flat boat) down the Monongahela and the Ohio Rivers to locate 
under the protection of the garrison at Holliday's Cove — thus saving a troublesome 
and unsafe journey through the wilderness of the interior. 

While the history of the hardships and privations encountered and overcome 
by these brave and and intrepid ancestors, in reaching and establishing new homes 
in this "wilderness of promise" is now lost to succeeding generations, their de- 
scendants are fortunate in possessing the absolute knowledge that when James Mc- 
Nary and his youngest son. David, had, in 1783, established a home on the waters 
of Harmon's Creek, in Washington County, Pennsylvania, that all of the "McNary 
Family," viz., the veuerable James McNary, the "founder;" James, his second 
son, in 1780; Thomas, the third son, in 1782; and now David, the fourth son. 
in 1783 — with their families — were all permanently established west of the Alie- 
ghenies — save only the eldest son, John, alone of the McNary quartet yet remain- 
ing upon the homestead at Chanceford, Pennsylvania — where they reared large 
families, under all the trials and privations incident to a pioneer life; and subject 
to the additional menace of numerous Indian incursions from the hostile tribes beyond 
the Ohio, and of the upper lake regions; and that John McNary, the oldest sou, 
before his demise in 1802, also provided a home for his family in the "new country" 
adjacent to the homes of his brothers — James and Thomas — on the waters of 
"Shirtee;" whence his family, after his death, all removed. And the advent of 
the nineteenth century thus witnessed a "reunion" of the McNary ancestry in a 
region destined soon to become the scene of the greatest agricultural and industrial 
activity on the face of the globe! In a "goodly" region, of wh:ch it might well 
be said to them, as to God's chosen people of old, "For the Lord thy God bringeth 
thee into a good land; a lar.d of brooks of water, of fountains, and of depths that 
spring out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley and vines; a land of 
oil, olive and honey; a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, 
thou shalt not lack anything therein "—almost a literal description of Washington 


County, Pennsylvania, and thou not nearly all is told! 

Amid such scenes, "in trial an:l privations many, " were the pioneer ancestors 
of the "MeXary" Clan domiciled in this "goodly"' laud. Be it ever the aim and 
ambition of their descendants to emulate the virtues and veuerate the memory of 
their worthy ancestors, to the most remote generations! And especially is it a 
matter of congratulation to their descendants of the present day, that their ancestors 
had neither part nor parcel in the unenviable "Williamson Expedition" from this 
roginn, in A. D. 17S2, that encompassed the brutal massacre of the "Moravian" 
Indians at Graudenhutten, — thereby placing an indelible stain upon the fair fame, 
not only of this region, but of the Scotch-Irish race as well! And a still further 
source of satisfaction have this numerous clan, in the knowledge that their ancestors 
were at the post of duty in the Revolutionary conflict, fighting iu the cause of 
freedom, and not fleeing — as did not a few — behind the Alleghenies, to shun a 
patriot's duty to his country in its hour of need! 

The noble deeds our sires have done, 
The mighty conflicts they have won — 

In memory's hall, we store them all; 
And fain accord, with due delight. 
All rev'rence to the memory bright 

Of all who honored Freedom's call!

The writer regrets the extremely meager knowledge now obtainable and 
here presentel, of the names and location of the descendants of the daughters of 
David McNary; caused largely, no doubt, from the fact that David's home was 
farther removed from his kindred than any of his brothers' locations; and also 
from the early dispersion of his daughters to homes of their own, in locations 
remote from their kinsfolk of the "McNary" name. The descendants of his 
daughter Mary — Mrs. Samuel Martin ('See No. 11) — are also descended from the 
"John McNary" branch of the family, and are enumerated therein. 

For traie of David McNary 's other descendants we are compelled to look 
almost exclusively to the line of descent of his only son, William. No. 2o; and. of 
the descendants of this William's nine children, we are again confined chiefly to 



the line of his son William. No. 44 — grandson of David— to continue the branch to 
the present generation. 

Descendants of Ebenezer MeXary, Xo. 43, son of William, are known to 
reside in Missouri, and other parts of the West, trace of whom, we regret to say, is 
not now available fur this publication. There are, also, "McXarys" in the States 
of Indiana and Illinois who seem to trace their ancestry to Robert MeXary, Xo. 35, 
son of William, of whose descendants we have no knowledge — but who was last 
heard of in the Coshocton. Ohio, region. Of the descendants of the children of 
William MeXary, Xo. 2o. other than of his youngest son, William, Xo. 44 — herewith 
given — the writer has. unfortunately, no trace. If all who know themselves to he 
descendants of the "David'' branch of the MeXary family will make such fact 
known to the Secretary of the MeXary Association, a note of such relationship 
will be placed on file, from which a revised record of this branch may be compile 1 
for future publication.

Martin McNarv Family 

( Copied from Book published by Rev. \V. P. McNary 

The head of this family was born at Greenock, Scotland. His father, 
whose name, according to tradition, was David, went with a wealthy gentle- 
man to Dungarvon, Ireland, as a land steward, and there died. His widow 
returned to Greenock, with all the family except ]\Iartin, who remained with 
their employer. He afterwards went to sea as a cabin boy, was captured and 
held prisoner for a while by some hostile nation, and finally came to America. 
Here he served in the French war, and came to Haddam, Connecticut, 
bringing a bundle of clothes, a watch, and a dying message from a man 
whom he had nursed and buried, to his widow, Mrs. Mahitible Blake. This 
widow he married some time before the Revolution, and from that time 
until his death he lived in Haddam. He served in the Revolutionary war, 
and the name on his Sergeant's certificate was "Kenary." His son James 
always persisted in writing his name "Canary," but all his descendants now 
write it McNary. 

Martin had a brother. John, who v ; sited him at Haddam before the 
war, "but neither of them being clerkly the family correspondence was nut 
kept up." 

At the time of his marriage with Widow Blake, he had a son, MAR- 
TIN, "a young lad" ('probably by a former marriage"), who settled in Litch- 
field, Conn., and left a son George, whose descendants still live there. 
This George got his wife at Fishkill. New York. 

There was a Martin McNary, who came from Connecticut to Fishkill. 
N. Y., and died there in 1S12, who in all probability was the same person. 
We will so consider him. and give his genealogy in this connection. 

The Elder MARTIN was a Catholic, supposed to have become so 
under the influence of his Foster Father in Ireland. He was "truth- 
ful, the soul of honor, anxious to have his children early baptized and 
taught Christian doctrine." "His wife was of Puritan stock, a near rela- 
tive of the Missionary. David Brainard, but being early orphaned, was 
brought up in the Church of England." The children all followed^ the 
mother instead of the father in their religion. The whole family is said to 
be of a mechanical turn of mind. 

MARTIN, of Haddam, Conn., had ten children. 

MARTIN. Fishkill, New York, (formerly of Litchfield, Conn.,) married 

Kate Snider, was a soldier of the Revolution, a blacksmith by trade,

Kentucky Family 

( Copied from Book Published by Rev. \V. P. McN'ary 

The head of the Kentucky family of McXarys is supposed to have 
come from Scotland, some time previous to the Revolution, and to have 
settled either in Xew Jersey or Pennsylvania. 

His eldest son was born in 1755. but whether in this country or in 
Scotland is uncertain. From the date of the birth of his eldest son it 
would appear that he was about the right age to be a brother of JAMES, 
of York county. Pa., or MARTIN, of Haddam. Conn., and it is possible 
that he was the JOHN referred to previously. According to the tra- 
ditions of the family, he moved to North Carolina in his old age. He 
had five sons and two daughters. 

TOHN. Hopkins county. Ky.. b. 1755. married an Irish lady ua

nut Hill, seven miles from Lexington. Ky.. some time previ is 
1790. at which place all his children were born : married Ann Camp- 
bell, a Scotch lady. He and his wife were both ••earnest and de- 
voted members" of the Walnut Hill Presbyterian Church, ne 
the oldest churches in that country, the grounds of which adjoined 
their farm. In the year 18 12. he removed to a farm in Muhlenburg 
countv. near Eiwood. which was formerly called McNary Post 
Office. He died in the year 1813. and was buried on bis estate. 

ALEXANDER, personal history not known. 

TWO SONS, are supposed to have lost their lives in the Revolutionary 
war. one at the battle of Cow Pens, and the other on boar I i a

in 1817; and returning in 1826, he settled on his father's place, the 
name of which he changed from McNary P. O. to Elwood ; mar- 
ried Sarah A. Scott, of Columbia. Dec. 26, 1822. He is said, by an 
old neighbor, to have been a "high-minded, kind-hearted, benevolent 
gentleman, of incorruptible integrity and unblemished honor." He 
died Oct. 7. 1872, and left five children: William, Samuel F., John

(Copied from Book Published by Rev. W. P. McNary.) 

It is generally believed by the McNarys of Kentucky, and the Mc- 
«'airys of Tennessee, that their families were originally one, and that 
ie i did not originally belong to the name of the latter family, and 
lerefore we give a brief sketch of it, as part of this history: 

JOHN McNAIRY, the eldest of six brothers, was born the 30th of 
March, 1762, in Lancaster county. State of Pennsylvania, and on 
the 20th day of December, 1787, was elected a Judge by the Gen- 
eral Assembly of North Carolina and held the first Superior Court 
that was held in Nashville, in the County of Davidson. He con- 
tinued in office until what is now called the State of Tennessee, by 
the Cession act. became the Territory South of the Ohio River. He 
was then appointed, by George Washington, then President, one 
of the Territorial Judges, and held that office until the Territory 
became the State of Tennessee, and was then appointed, by the 
General Assembly, one of the Judges of the Superior Coir. t of that 
State, and held that office until he was appointed, by the then 
President Washington, District Judge of the Courts of East and 
West Tennessee. Having been in office without intermission for 
forty-six years, he died on the 10th day of November, 1837, at his 
residence near Nashville, Tennessee." He had no children. 

OBERT, lived in North Carolina, but his descendants settled in Ala- 
bama and Mississippi. 

\MES, lived in North Carolina, but his descendants settled in Alabama 
and Mississippi. 

ATHANIEL, was a Lawyer in Nashville, Tennessee. He had eight 
children, all of whom are now dead except a widowed daughter, 
Mrs. Amanda J. Porter. 

NDREW, lived in Nashville, Tennessee, died without children. 

OYD, a Physician, lived in Nashville, Tennessee. He had four chil- 
dren one of whom is Dr. Walter McNairy, living in the Naval De- 
partment, Washington, D. C.
